State of the HeartH, 2018, Mixed media sheet metal paintings in ladder, 94” x14” 2.5” The six sheet metal paintings depict steelyards and anonymous workers in a weathered ladder. This piece is an homage to the people who worked hellish jobs climbing their ladder to the middle class. The repetitive squares reference a film strip frozen in time.
If memories reconstruct our past, then examining these demolished work sites offers a rich frame of reference of what "Made Here" once meant, and could mean now.
